Nine-man Tottenham lose again as Travers makes his mark

Share

Mauricio Pochettino's team held the Cherries off for all of it, only to see Bournemouth's Nathan Ake score a stoppage-time victor. Ake's late victor also means Tottenham have lost six consecutive away Premier League matches for the first time since May 2004.

Tottenham's task was made all the more hard two minutes before the interval when forward Son Heung-min was sent off for pushing Jefferson Lerma and halftime substitute Juan Foyth lasted 125 seconds before seeing red for a lunging tackle.

The game is a must-win for Spurs who need to secure Champions League qualification and give them the boost they need ahead of next week's Champions League clash with Ajax.

For all intents and purposes, though the game was decided through the Spurs' indiscipline.

At 19 years and 351 days, Travers is the first teenage goalkeeper to start a Premier League game since Joe Hart in October 2006 and this could be an audition or Travers to land the Bournemouth keepers' jersey on a regular basis, with experienced duo Asmir Begovic and Arter Boruc expected to move on this summer.

Travers had an excellent first-half, denying Dele Ali spectacularly, as well as making two great saves from two Lucas Moura efforts.

Bournemouth had plenty of the ball but they struggled to make their two-man advantage count as they rarely troubled Hugo Lloris.

And minutes later he nearly gave away a penalty when he kicked Callum Wilson in the back of the leg but again Pawson said no.

Juan Foyth was brought on at half-time but was given a red card three minutes after the break.

And Spurs were made to pay for not scoring the opener as they were reduced to 10 men just before the half time whistle.

But there was time for one more moment of drama in the 96th minute, as a corner saw Alli go down and it looked like Wilson pushed him to the ground, but no penalty kick was given.
